Grilled Alligator Ribs
- 6 pounds alligator ribs
- 32 ounces your favorite BBQ sauce
chips, for smoking
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
- Brush alligator ribs with enough barbecue sauce to coat.
- Place ribs
on a rack set in a baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and then aluminum
- Bake for 3 hours.
- Remove alligator ribs from the oven.
When cool enough to handle, remove the plastic wrap and cover loosely
with the aluminum foil; allow the ribs to rest 20 to 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare a smoker with your favorite type of wood chips.
- Transfer the ribs to the smoker and smoke for 30 to 45 minutes,
depending on the size of the ribs; alligator ribs are very lean and dry
out easily, so you may want to remove smaller ribs from the smoker
- After smoking, coat the ribs with more barbecue sauce.
- While ribs are smoking, preheat a grill to medium-high.
- Place ribs on
the grill and grill just until sauce begins to caramelize.
